Hensoldt presented its Multifunctional Self-Protection System (Multifunktionales Selbstschutz-System: MUSS) 2.0 at SAE Media Group's Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability 2022 pre-conference Active Protection Systems (APS) Focus Day held in London on 15 November.

Jan Spannhake, Hensoldt's chief engineer for ground-based self-protection systems, told at the event that there had been continuous improvements to MUSS since it was introduced into service in 2010 – when over 350 German Army Puma infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) have received the system. For the new-generation MUSS 2.0, of which prototypes are to be installed in Puma IFVs at Krauss-Maffei Wegmann's Kassel plant in 2023, these improvements include a laser warning receiver (LWR), providing the capability to detect laser beam-riding missiles. Spannhake reported that the LWR was tested in the last few months in the Australian desert.
